October 2018 has been the busiest Family History Month yet! I was able to giveaway a DNA kit, and attend the Arkansas Genealogical Society Fall Seminar and meet speaker, CeCe Moore of DNA Detectives! I have also just about completed a lineage application for the Mayflower Society and two other DAR supplement applications. Throw in some great pumpkin patch outings and it has been a wonderful month!
National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double helix in 1953. This year marks the 15th Anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project and is a day that many in the genealogy community look forward to. The DNA testing companies generally offer great discounts during the week, and it is a great opportunity to buy your first DNA test, or to stock up on kits to test family members.
